Magic Johnson Buys “Soul Train” Plus Footage Of Him Dancing On The Original Show [Video]

We all know Magic Johnson is a savvy businessman. At this point, he’s as known for his off court business acumen, as he is for his Showtime days as a Laker.

Recently he purchased the old school classic dance show Soul Train and has plans to return it to the air. But did you also know he was featured on the show back in the 80’s?? On his recent appearance on The Tonight Show, Jay Leno broke out the footage of Magic getting his groove on

That was probably Magic’s first or second year in the L, him being on Soul Train is the equivalent to a cameo in a music video today for athletes. How cool is that!
